(businesspress24) - Certification enables companies to easily migrate licences from hardware-based systems to any of Interoute’s 16 global cloud locations

London, 21 July 2016 – Interoute, owner operator of a global cloud services platform and one of Europe''s largest networks, has today announced that it has been named a Certified Cloud and Service Provider by Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, for its global networked cloud infrastructure platform, Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC).

Interoute is the first European company to receive the Red Hat Cloud Access designation, which enables Red Hat customers to flexibly move certain Red Hat product subscriptions from their data centres to the Interoute cloud in an integrated and easy-to use manner.

Enterprises migrating from legacy ICT environments to the cloud need infrastructure that is sympathetic to both old systems as well as new, agile and rapidly scalable applications. The certification of Interoute means that Red Hat’s robust operating system subscriptions can be deployed on the Interoute VDC digital platform, a dynamic low latency cloud solution that can also integrate easily with existing ICT, be that on-premise, co-located, managed hosting, or other cloud provider services.

Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, said: “Organisations wanting a smooth migration of IT projects using Red Hat solutions will find Interoute VDC the perfect platform for leveraging extreme geographic flexibility as well as legacy friendly, enterprise grade connectivity options. Interoute VDC offers 16 global locations, all built into our high performance network with free data transfer between zones, hundreds of global interconnects, best-in-class low latency performance and real data residency choice for our customers.”

Colin Fisher, manager, Certified Cloud and Service Providers at Red Hat EMEA added: “We believe that by awarding this certification to Interoute, it will improve the flexibility of our offering, enabling our customers to adapt and excel on their digital transformation journeys.”

Red Hat''s Certified Cloud and Service Provider designation is awarded to Red Hat partners following validation by Red Hat. Each provider must meet testing and certification requirements to demonstrate that they can deliver a safe, scalable, supported and consistent environment for enterprise cloud deployments. The global programme provides customers, independent software vendors (ISVs), and partners with the confidence that Red Hat product experts have validated a given solution so that implementations can begin with a solid foundation.

Red Hat Cloud Access is a "bring-your-own-subscription" benefit available from select Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Providers that enables customers to move certain Red Hat subscriptions from on-premise to public clouds. Through Red Hat Cloud Access, Red Hat customers can take advantage of the benefits of the Interoute VDC networked cloud offering, which can deliver fully elastic public and private cloud services across Europe, USA and Asia. Red Hat Cloud Access also enables customers to maintain a direct relationship with Red Hat – including the ability to receive full support from Red Hat’s award-winning Global Support Services organisation – on Interoute VDC, enabling customers to maintain a consistent level of service and support across all certified deployment infrastructures with consistent and predictable pricing.
